Building Hub

Our building hub offers you a chance to learn about the building process so you know exactly what to expect when you’re building a new home.

There’s nothing more exciting than building a home and getting ready to make memories.

So where do you start?

Our BGC Home building team will be happy to talk you through the building process and what’s involved at every stage in a one-on-one session.

The building process…
Get started.

Pre-Construction Process

The pre-construction phase marks the start of your home building journey.

Construction Process

With all the preparation complete, it’s now time to put all those plans into action.

PRE-CONSTRUCTION

Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to build your dream home, and now it’s time to get started.
The pre-construction phase marks the start of your home building journey.

Deal accepted

Once your deal has been accepted and your initial deposit has been received, our team will order the site survey and site inspection report for your land (if it’s titled). You will also be assigned your own Contract Administrator during this time. The pre-construction phase marks the start of your home building journey.

Portal access

Next, you’ll receive a login for your very own online portal, where you can track updates, view all documents, make online selections and even see your new home in 3D.

Inspection

This is when your survey and site inspection are conducted. Our team will order all survey and site inspection reports, to make sure everything is good to go before construction begins.

working drawings

Your working drawings will show how everything in your new home will come together, and will include:
– Floor plan
– Elevations
– Internal cupboards
– Site plan (if survey is available)

building permit

Once your PreStart selections are in, our team will amend your working drawings to reflect your new colours, fixtures and materials. You’ll be given these updated drawings plus a contract to sign.

plans certified

Once the survey and site inspection reports have been received, plans will be certified to a minimum 6 Star energy rating and structurally certified. You will also receive your building contract to sign, containing your working drawings & specifications.

pre-start

This is where things start to get really exciting. During PreStart, you’ll be able to visualise your new home more clearly, with the opportunity to pick all the colours, fixtures and materials that will bring your new home to life.

finance approval

When the building contract has been signed, it’s time for finance approval.

Settlement

Behind the scenes, your land settlement will have been working its way through the approval channels. Once you have all the final approvals and settlement is complete, it’s time to advance to construction.

contract signing

Once the survey and site inspection reports have been received, plans will be certified to a minimum 6 Star energy rating and structurally certified. You will also receive your building contract to sign, containing your working drawings & specifications.

Advance to build

All your hard work has paid off, and your new home is about to take shape. Congratulations!

SLAB DOWN

Construction of your home will begin with site works to compact the sand pad. Then, it’s time to pour the footings and put down the slab. Many buyers host their own ‘slab party’ gatherings to mark the occasion – after all, it’s a big achievement.

UTILITIES & PREP

When the slab is settled, our team of professionals will get to work to lay down the sewerage line, organise installation of stormwater tanks (if required), remove excess soil & deliver bricks, sand, window frames & door frames to the construction site.

EXTERNAL WORKS

Your external works will start with our bricklayers putting up your walls, followed by the delivery and installation of your roof timbers. Your electricity and plumbing will be added during this stage, too.

LOCKUP STAGE

Once your doors are on at lock-up stage, your house will be secure enough to commence internal fit-out works. This is a big step, with the finishing line now getting ever closer.

CABINETRY & TILING

Your internal works will start with the installation of your vanities and kitchen. When all the big items are secure and ready to use, our tilers will then install any tiling, and work on any other finishing touches.

FINISHING TOUCHES

At this point, there’s only a few little jobs left to do: Complete the glazing of shower screens and mirrors, paint the walls, install paving and garage door, internal painting & installation of floor coverings and blinds (if these are included in your contract).

ELECTRICS

With the final installation of your light fittings, power points and appliances. Your electrics will be installed as per your approved drawings, which you will have a copy of in your online portal.

PRACTICAL COMPLETION

When your new home reaches practical completion, we will organise a time for you to come and conduct one final inspection with your site manager.

KEY HANDOVER

When you’ve inspected your home carefully and read through and signed all the final contracts, your keys are ready to be handed over and you’re free to start moving your furniture in.

CONGRATULATIONS

Time to celebrate! Invite your family and friends over to celebrate your new home.

There are hundreds of products and finishes to look at, touch and experience, making it easy to make the best decision for you.
